On this week’s program, we spend an hour with Evan Christopher, recorded live at Clever Wine Bar in Mid-City. During the program, Evan and I talk about New Orleans, 'the clarinet road' and some of his musical heroes. I also visit OZ's Murf Reeves of Sylvain Restaurant and Chris Hannah of French 75 for a taste of what’s happening in the world of mixology.
Chris takes us shopping at the Maypop Community Herb Shop on just off St. Claude in the Bywater, he's searching for ingredients to prepare bitters for cocktails. One surprising elusive herb: sassafrass.
